ok so my friend wanted me to right a very evil acoustic riff
ie nothing else matter, alice in chains, stuff like that
and so i start just strumming random chords to find the most demonic chord i can find
so obviously minor and dimished chords are more "evil" or "metal" than major chords
and so on
so i was thinking what do you guys think the most evil chord you can strike on a guitar is? or just the most evil chord you have ever heard.
btw stick to standard tuning cause everyone knows detuning is very metal :]
I am awesome

I agree with myself

13th chords are pretty evil sounding IMO, also you can use tritones. But yeah context is important, playing nothing but 7th chords will sound a lot less evil than playing a major and following it with a 7th.

5th fret harmonic on the g and 7th fret harmonic on the B.

Sounds really horrible and dark. Technically it's an interval not a chord but if you have it ringing then put a riff over it, it can sound really cool.

A minor chord, unless with stated extensions, have the 5th interval implied in the name; It's unnecessary to state the "5th" in a minor chord.

yep but I like those specific ones for some reason. probably because it can be left to ring on it's own while I add a little riff to it.

G.

Listen to "Black Sabbath" by Black Sabbath. That chord is EVIL!


Yes. I guess the G chord was looked down upon in medival times for being "satanic".

It wasn't the G chord it was just the tritone.
That's one of the reasons Sabbath was so controversial, their use of that chord.

Play out of tonal harmony if you want really ****ed up sounding stuff. This means not staying in keys and stuff like that.

I was just about to post the "Bleak" chord if you catch my meaning

But, mine would be (to push off the balance of "evil")

I've been beaten to it, but use tritones. In earlier centuries they were consided evil and satanic by the church.
